As a result of being on life support at the Northern General Hospital (following an RTA), I lost 10 days of memory. I was also put on morphine, which left me feeling very depressed and confused - it took several days to overcome the shock, and I think that a psychologist could have helped me.
Being moved around in my first 5 days of consciousness was upsetting.
Also, I got to know the routines of older patients better than the nursing staff. I think their washing/breakfast routines should be written above their beds to help staff on different shifts cater to the particular needs of each patient.
